You know what they say about rain... it pours.
Our family feels like we're in a torrential downpour right now.
My aunt was diagnosed last week with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Her surgery is this Friday. Another family member was killed in a motorcycle accident Sunday. We missed Jacob's grandma's memorial service last Saturday. And now something else has happened. I'm not a fan of "unspoken prayer requests" really, but in this case, the situation isn't really blog material. But it is big, serious, and deeply troubling.
We really want to be home with our families right now; but at the moment, that isn't in the cards.
We feel heavy. Tired. And sad.
But we're surrounded by a loving community, and they're carrying us through and lifting us up.
As you think of us, will you pray? That ocean between us is seeming mighty large right now.
